Big game for both sides.Millwall win and we get dragged closer to the bottom 3.Win and i think we can stop worrying about any relegation fears.Hopefully our decent record at the den will continue.

Not great, failure to beat a team with less than 11 men again.

Definitely fans more negative after this game, kept the gap to 7 points but the lack of goal scoring has been made even more clear.

Still think we'll stay up either way, but it will be very close if we fail to sign a decent striker..

Sounded like a much more spirited performance. Hard-earned point is a good start, especially with ten men for half the game. We might not win for a while, but it's imperative that we start to become harder to beat.

Just got back.Millwall fully deserved a point for the way they battled when they went down to 10 men and had the best chance of the second half.From our point of view it was utterly predictable.Give the ball to the wide men who didn't put a decent cross in all night.Mccleary came on second half but Millwall doubled up on him and he wasn't very effective.Forde only had 1 save to make in the second half.

As Madejski says above we have got to get a striker. We're just not going to get very many wins whilst we're relying on Blackman, HRK, Pogrebnyak, Mackie, McCleary and Cox for our goals. None of them are genuine goalscorers.

Most expensive striker in our history.

Don't think ALF's the answer to our problems, as much as I don't really want to sign Glenn Murray permanently, bring him in and we'll be fine. We basically need a goalscoring equivalent of Pogrebnyak which Murray generally is. ALF is a goalscorer but can't play the lone striker role that Pog/Murray can.
